(Harrisburg) -- A midstate lawmaker wants to modernize the system by which schools can seek partial state reimbursement on construction projects.
State Representative Seth Grove, a York County Republican, says his bill would make the process user-friendly for both the Commonwealth and the schools.
"Part of the process also requires microfilm," he says. "Anybody know, really, what microfilm is anymore? Seriously? It's 2014 and we're still requiring microfilm in state government."
Grove says the state Department of Education should set up a public website through which schools can submit applications and track their progress.
The Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials supports Grove's bill.
It says a backlog has resulted in delayed reimbursements for districts across the state.
